He doesn t seem very impressed, Cine commented in some amusement Why should he be Kazul said Well, you re a dragon, Cine answered, a little taken aback What difference does that make to a catBefore Harry Potter, there was Princess Cine, a dragon named Kazul, and the Enchanted Forest I am no longer a 11 year old girl I am a grown ass woman, and I still love this book as much as I did the first time I read it.Share this book with your sisters, your daughters, your nieces This is a wonderful book for a young girl, it sends so many positive messages You don t have to be what people want you to be You do not have to fit into the mold You can be brave, headstrong, smart, without being stubborn, without being mean There is no romance There is a Prince Charming who, frankly, bores the living crap out of our intrepid young Princess Cine You do not need a Prince Charming to make your own Happily Ever After You can be in charge of your own destiny.This book grew with me through my childhood, and it remains with me as an adult Some books I ve read have made me think Some books have made me cry There is nothing so complex, so complicated about this little book it just makes me happy.Summary Princess Cine is a princess of the very pleasant kingdom of Linderwall It s pretty, it s quite ordinary There isn t much magic, thankfully, not too many evil stepmothers or witches, not too many dragon abductions, etc All in all, Linderwall was a very prosperous and pleasant place.Cine hated it. Her older sister are all lovely and ladylike, each beautiful than the last Cine is not She s too tall Her hair is frizzy and brown She s stubborn on a good day And she just won t stop learning inappropriate things Magical lessons Fencing Fighting Latin All lessons that her disgruntled parents abruptly put a stop to once they find out, cause it just ain t proper for a princess, yo And her fairy godmother is as useful as brains on a Kardashian.Cine puts up with it as best as she can, until the day her parents send her off to visit the very handsome, golden haired, blue eyed, Ken doll of a Prince Unfortunately, he s got nothing in between his ears, and when Cine finds out that her parents intend to make her MARRY the creature, well, that does it She takes the advice of a magical frog, packs some useful and practical things, and runs away from home.Unfortunately, or fortunately, as it may be, the audience that the frog sends her to seek happens to be dragons Very curious ones Who might want to eat her but they d rather nothumans are so stringy Using her wits, Cine talks her way into being a dragon s princess Kazul is the awesome dragon, who agrees to take her on Contrary to popular beliefs, not every dragon wants a princessIt has to do with status Dragons aren t required to have princesses, you see Most of us don t There are never enough to go around, and some of us prefer not to have to deal with the annoyances that come with them Knights, Cine guessed Among other things, Kazul said, nodding So having a princess in residence has become a minor mark of high status among dragons A minor mark Kazul smiled I m afraid so It s the equivalent of, oh, serving expensive imported fruit at dinner It s a nice way of showing everyone how rich you are, but you could make just as big an impression by having some of those fancy pastries with the smooth glazed icing and spun sugar rosesFortunately, thanks to her education, she is as well equipped to cataloguing draconian libraries as well as she is whipping up an excellent dessert Cine specializes in making cherries jubilee.Instead of being princessy and spending her days embroidering and doing stupid shit like that, Cine now spends her days cleaning out the dragon treasure troves, cataloguing and polishing old dragon treasures some of them magical Along the way, she has to deal with the constant stream of idiotic Knights and Princes who want to rescue her does anyone bother asking Cine if she wants to be rescued No , entertaining some other fluffy headed fellow princessesI m Cine, Cine said I don t need comforting, and I m not particularly sad or sorry to be here, but if you d like to come in and have some tea, you re welcome to The first two princesses looked as if they would have liked to be startled and appalled by this announcement but were much too well bred to show what they were feeling. among whom she unexpectedly finds a good friend, and dealing with, among other things, a jinn, a killer bird, a witch with many cats or appropriately, cats and their witch , and some wascally wizards There is magic There is mystery There is a potential threat to the dragons for whom Cine has come to care deeply.The Setting, the Plot, All That Good Stuff This is a very short book, and there is not a single dull moment There is not a lot of introspection, but there is an exceeding display of Cine s competency She is a person of action, and she fills the book with her energy The book is driven by Cine s initiative, and she is always on the move, be it finding a fire proofing spell in an ancient spellbook, or outwitting some poor Prince Charming s misguided attempt to rescue her, to fooling some nefarious wizards who think she is a typical princess The setting is magical, but it is not exceedingly detailed, just enough to build up the imagination.The Main Character Cine and her dragon are the stars of this book, and they make me love it I recommended this book for young readers, and it is just so darned appropriate for an impressionable young woman She is an awesome main character She is book smart, and she is not perfect She is a librarian at heart, a researcher who relies on her skills in research and her thirst for knowledge rather than outright brilliance Cine is relatable and reliable, smart, witty, absolutely pragmatic and practical without ever becoming bitchy and annoying in the least And however resourceful Cine is, she knows when to call for help when she needs it.Every young girl should have a copy of this book and this series. The scholarly princcesses, the very sensible dragons and irritating princes What else can a girl want Q There was a great deal of etiquette, from the proper way to curtsy before a visiting prince to how loudly it was permissible to scream when being carried off by a giant When she couldn t stand it any longer, she would go down to the castle armory and bully the armsmaster into giving her a fencing lesson.Q Well, I fence So it is too done by a princess Q Nothing interesting seems to be proper Q And that was the end of the magic lessons.The same thing happened over the Latin lessons from the court philosopher, the cooking lessons from the castle chef, the economics lessons from the court treasurer, and the juggling lessons from the court minstrel c Q Nowadays, all the princes are talking birds, or dogs, or hedgehogs c Q Nine times out of ten, talking is a way of avoiding doing Q Dragons are are fond of princesses, aren t they Very, said the dragon, and smiled.Q Being a dragon s princess is a perfectly respectable thing to do, so my parents couldn t complain.Q Well, I m not a proper princess, then, Cine snapped I make cherries jubilee, and I volunteer for dragons, and I conjugate Latin verbs or at least I would if anyone would let me So there Q She had always been interested in what the knights and dragons were supposed to say than in memorizing the places where she was supposed to scream.Q The fencing lessons were just the beginning, Cine assured him So you see why I m perfectly happy being a dragon s princess Q But what does a dragon want with a crepe pan Q There were two knights the following day, and four the day after that.On the fourth day there was only one, but he was exceptionally stubborn Q Aren t you a little slow she asked irritably There ve been eight knights here before you Eight the prince said, frowning I thought by now there d have been at least twelve Perhaps I d better come back later Q I didn t come here to argue I came to meet the person who keeps borrowing my crepe pan c Q I was going to say that it isn t wise to run away from your dragon I believe it s done all the time c Q it was best to be polite to anyone as large and toothy as a dragon, even if he wasn t being at all polite to her.Q a flood a few years later Some hero or other shoved a giant into a lake to drown him The silly clunch didn t realize that if he put something that big into a lake, the water would have to go somewhere Q It s not that easy to get into the Enchanted Forest, she explained At least, not if you re trying to get in Princes and youngest sons and particularly clever tailors stumble into it by accident all the time c Q Very few things are willing to mess with a dragon, even in the dark c Q Well, you re a dragon, What difference does that make to a cat c Q Will wonders never cease For once a human with sense is getting the forfeit Yes, you can take someone with you, as long as you re touching him Same for objects if you can carry it , you can take it with you You get one trip per feather That s all c Q She pored over the book all evening, and Cine found it fascinating to watch the dragon delicately turning pages with her claws c Q You Dragons Us That looks interesting Can I help Maybe opening jars would make him forget about You Dragons Us, for a while c Q Do you suppose he means it Why would he keep bellowing it at us if he didn t mean it c Q What he is matters not, It is enough that thou and he shall die Enough for whom c Q I never thought of that Well, start thinking now, Q But what do I do if someone comes in Duck into the banquet area And if someone comes in there, too, curl up in the corner and pretend you re a rock c Q In her experience, someone in a good mood did not throw things at visitors c 4.5 5 starsThis is my 4th time reading this Still good I did dock half a star down because second book is better than the first still, the whole series are amazing, even if I am well out of reading age for these books I enjoy them immensely After I got finished with the book, my first thought was why haven t they made a movie out of this yet And then I thought what if the casting is wrong, what if they don t follow the book, what if cgi is cheapOh, the horrors So now I am actually happy that they haven t, no need to ruin THE BEST MIDDLE GRADE FANTASY EVER Can you tell that I am a fan To not make this review too long as I would like to review the whole series on my blog sometime I will just say that Cine is the best female character ever invented Girls, if you need a hero, look no further This book was first published in 1990 and since then there were many great female role models, but comparing to Cine, they all are trying a little too hard If you are looking for a great easy fantasy book that includes princesses, dragons and magic without being cookie cutter look no further Read this book, and then make your daughter read it Because the world needs Cines.My WEBSITEMy INSTAGRAMMy WORDPRESS BLOG
